The 2019 Leavenworth Regional: Thursday, April 11

Are we having fun yet?

Attendance So Far:

1169 tables, down from 1173½ at this point in 2017, a 0.4% decrease.  Still perfectly comparable with the previous version, and a good weekend day or two will put us back in a positive position.  Thursday last time was one of the two biggest days, the targets are easier to reach from here on in....

Have a look at the masterpoints page to see totals for everyone, including red-gold breakdowns, updated each night by about midnight.

Friday's noon hour speaker is Rhonda Foster and the topic will be: "What's Forcing".  (There is an old bridge story about Eli Culbertson giving a lecture to several hundred people in the days when bridge familiarity was an absolute must for any bright young socialite.  His topic was similar to Rhonda's and he outlined several dozen ways opener or responder could make an auction forcing over the course of ninety minutes or so.  Eli could only see the first four or five rows of the auditorium but knew from the hubbub that it was nearly full, and his attention turned to the beautiful young lady in row two who, unlike everyone around her who were nodding and filling notebooks with pages and pages of detailed notes, had only a single sheet of paper and had written nothing on it until Eli began wrapping up his lecture.  Applause and a chance to meet the lecturer followed, and while shaking hands with the notetakers, Eli's eye was fixed on the beautiful lady who had apparently summarized his lengthy lecture in a single sentence, and he slowly made his way towards her near the refreshments area.  "Could I ask you," Eli said when he had a chance to speak to her, "to show me your notes?  You listened so intently and wrote so much less down than the others that I imagine you must have just the mind and memory for expert bridge."  She reluctantly agreed to show him the note, which said..."never pass.")

Saturday's noon hour speaker (in the Colwood room) is Kirk Homis and the topic will probably be posted today.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Special Schedule notice: It's not on the official schedule for the tournament, but the District Final in two of the four flights of the Grand National Teams will be held on Saturday and Sunday here at the tournament site.  The Flight C (non-Life Master) and Flight A (0-6000 MP) events were held March 16-17 in Everett, and the winners were:

Flight A winners: Alex Hong, West Vancouver BC; Sidney Yang, Richmond BC; Lu Gan - Kai Zhou, Burnaby BC.

Flight C winners: Jennifer Hong, Burnaby BC; Henry Yao, Vancouver BC; Lisa Li, Surrey BC; Flora Yan, Langley BC.

(Your Daily Bulletin editor was directing a game in Vancouver when he remembered that the GNT A and C finals had taken place the previous weekend, so he looked up the results to find that two Vancouver teams had won and would be flying to Las Vegas to represent District 19 in the National Final of the GNT.  He announced the good news to the room, adding that "this proves the old adage that two Hongs make a flight"!)

The other two flights, the B Flight (0-2500) and the unlimited Championship Flight, will be contested this weekend as part of the Regional.  To play your team must have earned a club qualification at club games held during the qualifying period from September thru February (and in some cases into March), or pay a fee for all unqualified players.  Both events will be full two-day events with the actual format depending on the turnout.  In the championship flight especially, there are regulations about pre-disclosure of unusual methods and it is recommended that you sign up early (by 12:30) so that everything required can be taken care of before the game.

More detailed information is here and on the GNT flyer (pdf) here.

Thursday Open Pairs

Evening 71% wins it for Jacob and McOrmond

Top on a board was 21, average for two sessions 567.  Winning Scores: 722.29 (A), 645.31 (B), 574.21 (C).  To make the overalls you needed: 609.38 (A), 561.48 (B), 539.79 (C).

From sixth at halftime, it only took a huge final session of 71% for Gordon McOrmond - Dan Jacob to win the event by almost two full boards.  B winners Kelly Meenagh and Don Bell had a useful lead at halftime and cruised to a wire-to-wire win.  The under-500 winners, Mark Beduz and Marla Nickerson, were only three matchpoints off the C pace at the break; and they both held on and finished third in the B strat!

Thursday Gold Rush 0-750 Pairs

Double strat win for Punnett and MacDonald!

Top on a board was 23, average for two sessions 552.  Winning Scores: 678½ (7, 3), 526½ (1).  To make the overalls you needed: 600½ (7), 586½ (3), 509½ (1).  I had a hard time explaining that the strats in this event were called 7 3 and 1 instead of A B and C.  This simple fact will help avoid you being confused by what comes out of ACBL Live.

The event winners, Jon Punnett and Donald (Bob) MacDonald, also won the second strat, led both at halftime, and no other pairs were within a board of them by the end.  The under-100 winners, Gillian Mouat and Jo Albinati, also led their strat at the break, and won by nearly a full board.

Bracket Two has fifteen teams and a masterpoint average of 1600 per player.  ACBL Live link to brackets  
There will be three teams in the final of bracket two after a team's masterpoint total was mistyped, resulting in them starting in bracket one. 11.02 gold is the third place award, second in the three-way final will be worth 15.43 gold, I think. Losers in the three head-to-head semifinals (tri-finals?) will receive a fourth-fifth-sixth award, probably slightly less than the 3/4 award of 8.82 gold.
